My first GDT card for Cupcake...


Good morning folks and welcome to my first scheduled post of the day. When the lovely Faye dropped me an email last month to ask if I would be guest over at Cupcake Craft Challenge for the month of April....well how could I refuse!!

So here we have my first offering...the theme is "something you would find in your sewing basket". I have mainly focused on the stitching side of things and have used this fab digi from Clear Dollar Stamps called Sew Grateful which I thought would work perfectly.

I coloured the image with copics, the papers are Alora from Bo Bunny. I made the backing papers look like a patchwork effect and added some zig zag stitching, on the images I added some embroidered stitching. To finish I added a couple of buttons and I threaded the needle with some embroidery thread. Pop over to the Cupcake Craft Challenge Blog to check out the other cards...
